Bengals Take Risk On Dhani Jones

The most interesting move the Bengals have made so far this week is going out and signing NFL veteran Dhani Jones.dhanijones1.jpg Jones is a vet of 8 years in the league and has been a solid contributor for both the Giants and Eagles in the past. The Bengals signed Jones to a one year deal this week and cut Andre Frazier to make room for him.

While Jones has been solid in the past, I see this as yet another band-aid move for a team that has a wound that needs stitches. However with Brooks banged up and the Bengals still waiting for linebackers like Geanty to get healthy, this move had to happen. I’m worried though as Jones has already been cut twice since last season, there has to be a reason for that.

Dhani should have lots in common with his fellow Bengals that have made their way to the police blotter….

Hate to see local boy Frazier be the casualty of this as well, he was a really good special teams guy and seemed to really be a team player overall.

And oh yeah, Dhani has his own website, check it out here…..
